Inner Sanctum Mysteries, Vol. 1 - Abridged

The Classic Radio Collection

Description

Taking its name from a popular series of mystery novels, Inner Sanctum Mysteries debuted overNBC’s Blue Network in January 1941. It featured one of the most memorable andatmospheric openings in radio history: an organist hit a dissonant chord, adoorknob turned, and the famous “creaking door” slowly began to open. Everyweek, Inner Sanctum Mysteries toldstories of ghosts, murderers, and lunatics. Produced in New York, the castusually consisted of veteran radio actors, with occasional guest appearances bysuch Hollywood stars Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre, and Claude Rains. What made Inner Sanctum Mysteries unique among radiohorror shows was its host, a slightly sinister sounding fellow originally knownas “Raymond.” The host had a droll sense of humor and an appetite for ghoulishpuns, and his influence can be seen among horror hosts everywhere, from theCrypt-Keeper to Elvira. Raymond Edward Johnson was the show’s host until 1945;Paul McGrath took over as host until the show left the air in 1952. ProducerHiram Brown would utilize the creaking door again in the 1970s, when heproduced and directed The CBS RadioMystery Theater.
